This book describes Arkansas' pivotal role in America's first truly foreign war.Part military history, part social history, and part history of the westward movement during the major conflict of the 1840s, this anthology of essays bridges the gap between scholarly and popular history. Five contributors have examined the role of the citizen-soldier, the impact of war preparations upon the citizenry, movement of troops and yet-to-be organized volunteers, the war's effect on Americans' perception of their nation, and the strain caused by massive territorial acquisition following the war.
